Now available: book of lullabies

Our next full-length collection of poems, Megan Leonard’s book of lullabies, is available now for pre-order. Orders should ship in early January 2021…if the post office ever recovers from 2020.

Megan Leonard’s debut is an incantation of motherhood. As the Snow Queen navigates her way through childbirth, fears for her children, and the insomnia of new mothers everywhere, Leonard integrates the mood of the coastal north Atlantic, where she resides, with surety and stark, icy beauty.
